Wiggin and Dana Litigation Partner, David Hall, released a new book entitled, CRACK99: The Takedown of a $100 Million Chinese Software Pirate, published by W.W. Norton & Company, Inc. on October 19th. David was recently interviewed by the Connecticut Law Tribune (CLT) to discuss his pursuit of this international software pirate. The CLT details David's experiences and provides insight into the operation.

The book is a gripping narrative of David's experience as a member of the elite undercover team that captured Xiang Li, creator of Crack99, an online retail site selling high-tech software products used largely by the military. It presents an eye-opening look at cybercrime and its chilling consequences for national security.
